Orange Spiced Hot Cocoa Espresso for Two

Hi Friends,
Here's  something you can share with 
your sweetheart on Valentine's Day.


Orange Spiced Hot Cocoa Espresso

1 cup any type milk- I used almond milk
1 cup brewed coffee- I used espresso
2 TBSP. unsweetened cocoa powder
2 scoops Collagen powder- Optional- I get mine from Trader Joe's
2  TBSP. sweetener of your choice- honey or maple- I used Agave syrup
fresh peel from 1/2 an orange
1/4 tsp. whole cloves
1/4 tsp. ground cinnamon
Garnish: Whipped cream and cinnamon stick



Adding the Collagen is optional....but really I would love to encourage you to start adding

this to your diet.  Adding 2 scoops gives you another 11 grams of protein.

I put it in my coffee everyday. You can't taste it.

There are vegan and vegetarian powders available also.

It's great for skin, hair, joints and connective tissue.




Directions:

Add all ingredients except orange peel, to a small sauce pan.
Use a small whisk to combine.
Warm on medium heat, while whisking.
Add orange peel, when thoroughly heated, 
strain through a sieve to remove spices and peel.



Garnish with whipped cream and cinnamon stick, sprinkle with cinnamon sugar.

Serves Two!



Enjoy and Happy Valentine's Day.
